Making Peace with the Dark Goddess And the Ascent Journey

Cayelin_April_2016by Cayelin K Castell

On February 19, 2018 Venus rises from the Underworld as the Aries Wild Warrior Woman Meta-Goddess to begin the process of reclaiming her true self, having released all the distortions she had previously collected on her journey to the underworld.

Venus/Inanna/Aries is now a fully initiated Goddess having gone through a shamanic death that required her to die to who she believed herself to be so she could be reborn into who she truly is as the Self-Sufficient, Confident, Fierce Protector of the Cosmic Balance, committed to restoring Divine Justice where ever needed. If we have been paying attention to this journey this is true for us all. Read More

What Does the Aries Wild Woman Really Want?

I came across a children’s story by Gwen Gross in a book titled Knights of the Round Table when my youngest son was in third grade. He is now age 27 so this was many years ago. We both loved the story and I found it was a wonderful description of what the Aries Wild Woman wants most…actually it fits in many ways for most women but most especially the Aries Wild Woman.
 .
I, of course, related to it right away being Venus in Aries myself. As the story describes she might want to experience some of these things as explained below, but what she really wants is NOT primarily beauty, love, wisdom, significant other, children, riches, adventure, or truth.
 .
More importantly if she doesn’t have what she really wants she can not fully be her true self. I love the wisdom found in this story and I hope you will too!

Lady Ragnell
In this story King Arthur and Sir Gawain encounter “Sir Malger of the Deadly Axe.” Sir Malger challenges King Arthur with a riddle. Arthur’s life depends upon him discovering the correct answer to this question, “What is it that women want most?”

Arthur has seven days to find the answer, so he and Gawain spend this time asking every woman they meet what they want most. The answers they receive are varied including beauty, love, wisdom, a partner, children, riches, adventure, and truth. Somehow Arthur knows none of these are the correct answer to the riddle.

Sekhmet Returns

IMG_2816Sekhmet and the Leo Venus Cycle

Last August 22, 2015 a new 19 month Initiatory Journey of Venus began. This cycle lasts until March 31, 2017.

Venus rose into the morning sky in Leo ignited the Solar Feminine archetype of Leo. On July 13, 2016 Venus rose into the evening sky to claim her throne.

When healthy the Leo archetype expresses as sacred feminine power and leadership captured in the imagery of the Radiant Divine Sovereign Queen.

There are many examples in our cross-cultural ancient pantheons of Goddess Queens, including Inanna, Ishtar, Isis, Hera, Juno, Amaterasu, Astarte, Rhiannon, Lakshmi, Persephone, Erishkigal, Selene, Freya, Ixchel and many more.

Venus passes through each phase of this new initiatory journey in the archetypal realm of Leo. It is powerful time to engage the mysteries of healthy Self-Love, what does that mean and  how can we make the most of this opportunity? A new Venus Tele-Class series that begins on July 31 explores the gifts the Leonine Goddesses have for us with a special focus on Sekhmet, the Egyptian Lionheaded Queen Goddess often depicted with the Solar Disk on her head.

Although Sekhmet’s story has been distorted in its patriarchal telling, there are remnants within these Tellings that let us know Sekhmet is a pure divine solar light being and she is carrying the best of the Royal Codes of Queenship. She reminds us these light codes are within each of us and we now have an opportunity to remember and reclaim our divine heritage. Read More

Reclaiming the Divine Sovereign Queen – Venus in Leo Journey

by Cayelin K Castell

 Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be
brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
~ Marianne Williamson from A Return To Love
